  1. Not sure if "cute" is the word, but regardless, it was evident at the sessions that Williams hadn't revisited BotFoJ in some time. After a preliminary run-through of the entire piece sans Hooten (which was recorded), he came into the control room to discuss aspects of the performance and piece with Shawn Murphy. BTW, @lairdo, I really enjoyed the interview and loved hearing Hooten discuss the genesis of the project. Jerry Cole and David Paul (another donor) and their wives were in attendance. I didn't get to speak with them, but I overheard David Paul, I believe, speaking with Williams about having worked with him back in his television days. Stanley Wilson's name was mentioned at one point.
  2. Would be very happy with a revisit/remaster of Monsignor. As I recall from a forum post or private correspondence with Nick Redman, he had located the full sessions or at least something more than just the album release. But there may have been some licensing concerns.
  3. Check your PMs, @A Ghost From Highwood!
  4. I pre-ordered last year!
  5. Plus this is just a pre-order deal from the Super Deluxe Edition site. It will likely be available through other avenues some time in April, which appears to be the release month. Shipping rates from other places may be less.
  6. The only works that were recorded in September were the Trumpet Concerto and Theme from Born on the Fourth of July. So unlikely.
  7. This may have been posted before, but I just ran across it... Scoring A Myth: Superman's Sonic History https://www.newsounds.org/story/298761-scoring-myth-supermans-sonic-history/ Soundcheck (WNYC) June 13, 2013 Mike Matessino discusses the "blue box" and Superman music over the years.
  8. NEW SONG AVAILABLE Netflix LINK 1 or 2 Ballad of Buster Scruggs, The [Song - "When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings" (David Rawlings & Gillian Welch), 2:35]
  9. And the two "Chris"'s behind Gustavo: Martin and Waltz.

    RIP Nick Redman

    This is incredibly sad news, indeed. As I wrote on Facebook, he was a champion among champions when it came not only to film music but really, all things film. As with most folks, the Star Wars box set was my first real introduction to his name, followed by the DCC release of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The rest is history. I was privileged to have had dinner with Nick and his wife Julie Kirgo on a few occasions while visiting LA. Preceding one of these work trips to LA, a mutual friend of ours had arranged an introductory call between me and Nick. I was nervous as hell to speak with him, but he couldn't have been nicer and graciously agreed to a dinner meet-up in Santa Monica. Nick and Julie picked me up at my hotel in Julie's MINI. Nick kindly gave me the front seat (I being taller than he) and before we even pulled away from the parking lot, he handed me a stack of CDs he had produced/been involved with for Intrada and Varese. I was floored!! We ended up at a sushi restaurant, and enjoyed great food while getting to know each other through diverse conversations. Nick was very much an American. He said he never looked back once coming across the Pond. (As an aside, John Leguizamo strolled into the restaurant during our meal.) My girlfriend (now wife) and I also spent some time in Chicago with Julie and Nick during the wedding weekend for our mutual friend. Here I am standing behind Nick during one of our breakfasts together: Our mutual friend had arranged for a film music "Name that Tune" game during the rehearsal dinner, and I and the other gentleman pictured above teamed up against Julie and Nick. We had the distinct honor of besting Julie and Nick in the game, and it became a running joke whenever we spoke after that. Nick was so very warm and direct, albeit somewhat quiet, and I found myself trying to make him laugh because he really lit up when he did so. His knowledge and passion for film and film music was unparalleled, yet he was never boastful. His love for Julie was evident. They were a perfect match, personally and professionally. He made an incredibly positive impact on my life beyond the many projects in which he was involved, even though I certainly didn't know him as well as others here on JWFAN and elsewhere. RIP Nick.
  11. Yep, more recently, they've just posted 30-second samples from the commercial release. Boo!!
  12. NEW SONG/SCORE AVAILABLE Amazon Studios LINK 1 or 2 Beautiful Boy [Song - "Treasure" (Sampha & Sampha Sisay), 04:39] Suspiria (Thom Yorke) [25 cues, 1:20:28] Also, along with the Suspiria MP3 files, there is the following file (Chopin's Polonaise) but I'm not sure if it goes with Suspiria or one of the other Amazon Studios films: https://www.amazonstudiosguilds.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Chopin_Polonaise_Temp_Track.mp3 Anyone with insight on which film this Chopin track would be linked to (if any) on the Amazon Studios page? Thanks in advance!
